by ExperiencePlus! - Thursday, January 3, 2013 banner_wholejourneys

Join ExperiencePlus! Bicycle Tours and Whole Journeys – a division of Whole Foods Market® – on two new “Active Foodie” cycling adventures that explore local landscapes through activities like visiting historic villages & cycling through breathtaking countryside while focusing on food traditions.  These tours differ from other ExperiencePlus! tours  in that they are specially designed in collaboration with Whole Journeys to delve deeper into the food culture and history and source for each destination.

Our Pedaling Provence  tour is scheduled and designed specifically to explore some of the most intriguing and important markets of Provence. It also includes the opportunity to join a local chef for a cooking lesson that begins with a visit to one of the largest outdoor markets in France. You’ll meet vendors and learn what to look for to select the finest ingredients before heading back to Chef Vedel’s home to make a fabulous lunch from the bounty.

And for those who prefer Tuscan fare join us on the Toscana in Bicicletta tour to feast on the finest Pecorino in the world, Pecorino di Pienza. This tour also includes the famous wine towns of Montalcino and Chianti and we will have plenty of opportunities to sample  and learn more about why the wine from this area is so darn good.

We have spring and fall departures for both our  Pedaling Provence and Toscana in Bicicletta Whole Journey tours and if you book by January 31st, 2013 you’ll save $250 per person.
